Sea to Summit says:

About Permethrin: Permethrin kills ticks on contact with treated clothing. According to the Connecticut Department of Public Health it `has low mammalian toxicity is poorly absorbed through the skin and is rapidly inactivated by the body. Skin reactions have been uncommon.`Permethrin is used in tropical areas to prevent mosquito-borne disease such as dengue fever and malaria. Mosquito nets used to cover beds may be treated with a solution of permethrin. Military personnel training in malaria-endemic areas may be instructed to treat their uniforms with permethrin as well. An application should last several washes.  

About the Holes: STS mesh products use ultra-fine mesh that has 80 holes per square cm (around 516 holes per square inch). The WHO recommends a minimum of 156 holes per square inch for mosquito nets and there are many products with 2-300 holes per square inch.

Very lightweight piece of kit that can make a huge difference to comfort and safety - best use is when combined with a wide brimmed hat as per the photo. This Nano version is incredibly light compared with the standard net it will give the same protection but I guess must be less durable.

Sea to Summit Nano Mosquito Headnet

Paid a few nickles (shillings?) more than I would have here in the US, but as I was already placing an order, who cares? Advertised as 11g w/o stuff sack; mine weighs 10g. Shaved 11g off my base weight compared to my old head net, for only $12.53! Only a gram weenie would understand. A bit more palatable to say it weighs less than half of what the old one does.
